I have a 97 sl1 its ******* antifrreeze theres no heat i looked around and think its coming from the waterpump. should i get a new pump or could it be the gasket?

if you have no heat inside the car, but the engine is otherwise running well then you have a plugged heater core. replacing it is not something you do in an hour with a hammer and pliers. take it to a shop which does heating and A/C work on cars and pay them to do the whole job. that will save you the money of having it towed there to have them finish the job when you realize you are in over your head and the car is disabled.

My 97 Acura 3.2 TL starts to overheat and I also notice that the air gets cold when the heater is on. But when I begin to drive after stopping, the temp. goes back to normal and the air gets back hot...

Possible thermostat but more likely fan belt is slipping when idling causing waterpump to slow or even stop spinning. Tighten or replace fan belt that runs over waterpump pulley

Car over heating. tempature gauge fluxuates

Your overheating problems can have several possible causes.
1) Airlock in heating system - solution - bleed air from cooling system. Method is dependent on make/model of vehicle
2) Radiator blocked - solution - drain and flush radiator
3) Failed waterpump - solution - fit new waterpump
4) Engine thermostat stuck in closed position - solution - fit new thermostat
5) Electric cooling fan (if fitted) failing to operate - solution - check fan, fan operating switch, all wiring and connectors
6) Not enough coolant in system - solution - check and top up to required level. Also check all hoses for sign of leakage.
7) Faulty temperature gauge giving incorrect reading

My 1990 subaru legacy was overheating.

well....if that stopped your overheating problem, that's good, but todays engines depend on running at a certain temp. for proper performance, gas mileage, etc. We can thank unleaded fuel for that....
